Xiang Palace In SOHO IPOH

On that particular day, both of us did not any plans on what and where to take our lunch... we have ran out of ideas and choices and we just drove around town to get some "food inspiration" ... hahaha...  And good thing we manage to get to this place...

SOHO Ipoh (Small Office, Home Office) is the new place in town, located at the intersection Jalan Sultan Idris Shah (Brewster Road), corner of The Sultan Yussuf Fountain roundabout which also walking distance to Ipoh Parade Shopping Mall where one of the over-rated shops is located. 

This SOHO is an enclosed area, as the shops are not fully occupied yet, the parking in this area is free for now.   But we did not go into that over-rated shop, we rather eat somewhere else.  My girl has sharp eyes, she saw one shop called Xiang Palace, just newly opened while I was looking for parking around the vicinity.
My girl was fascinated with something here...
They have see through glass where we can see the "food-in-making"...
We ordered a big bowl of noodles with dumplings...
There were six big ones inside.....
These are not wanton noodles... looks like Hakka noodles to me....
Well, it is certainly enough for her!
Taste?  She finished it all...  :)
As for me, I wanted to try some Black Sesame dumpling........ 
And the next thing I know, I was served only ONE dumpling!
When I told the waiter why just one... he answered that I wrote "1" on the order chit....
Oh, I thought when I wrote "1"...  it would come in one small basket??? 
I thought I would be served like this... 3 in the basket, not 1.... 
hahahaaa..
Anyway, my girl and I had a good laugh over it...
Cos they gave us another basket with 3 inside... so altogether we had 4 of these.....
And the best thing is.... they gave another 10% discount on the total bill...
Our bill only came to RM13 something with drinks...
Not too bad.. worth trying again...

  2. So funny to serve you 1 bao in the whole empty basket. Normally 1 means 1 basket, you are right. So how did they charge you for the baos, not per basket but per number of baos? The 10% discount is given to all customers or just to you both?

  5. Oh? So that's the meaning behind the name. I thought it was following the name of the red-light district in London. :D Those buns look like the lau sar pao I had yesterday morning...minus the black dot. Love the look of the dumplings - gorgeous.

  14. This is also a popular trend here in KL now to show the kitchen scene. Makes the diners more excited and wait longer knowing that the chefs are working hard. This open concept makes the ambiance more spacious too. Nice place!

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
